I wonder if Homeland Security has a color coding for this particular warning. A Serbian village, Zarozje, is in full panic after its mayor issued a serious public health warning of an outbreak of vampires. One particular vampire actually: Sava Savanovic, which by the way is a great name for a vampire.
The mayor suggested people stock up on garlic and crosses after an old water mill collapsed. The story is that Sava Savanovic used the mill to prey upon unsuspected visitors. Apparently, the town allowed visitors to be vampire fodder to keep Sava Savanovic away from the local denizens (This may explain why Zarozje is not a popular tourist spot). The family that owned the mill refused to enter it because Sava Savanovic lived there. The mill rotted and recently collapsed. This really really ticked off Sava Savanovic, who, as a vampire, was already pretty ticked off.
According to the mayor, this has left Sava Savanovic without a home and looking for midnight snacks.
Somehow I am convinced that behind this story is a garlic farmer who was facing a sales slump.
